I have been eating at Positano's for many years and never been disappointed. Their food is delicious (the Dover sole being filleted table side is always fun to watch). The service is unflaggingly courteous and attentive. And the ambience is low key and casually elegant.

Christopher our waiter made our visit special. His knowledge of the wine and food and attentiveness to our every need was exceptional. We were two steps past heaven when we finished our meal.

I had high hopes for this place and the atmosphere was really great. We ordered what we though were vegetarian dishes, but one came with timy, almost invisible pieces of meat. The other, the waitress assured us was vegetarian, but it tastes and smelled like...More
